If the controller is AR8121/AR8113 PCI-E adapters(also known as
L1E) there is no working driver for FreeBSD. Because the controller
is quite different from its predecessor L1, new driver should be
written for the controller.
It's not feasible for me to write the driver until I can actually
access the hardware. :-(
